About World Theatre Day
The International Theatre Institute (ITI) created World Theatre Day in 1961. The ITI Centers and the global theatre community observe it on March 27 every year. To commemorate this occasion, numerous theatre activities at the national and international levels are planned. One of the most significant of these is the distribution of the World Theatre Day Message, in which, at ITI's invitation, a person of note from around the world expresses their thoughts on the subject of theatre and a culture of peace. Jean Cocteau penned the original World Theatre Day Message in 1962.
Since then, World Theatre Day has been observed annually on March 27 (the date of the Paris "Theatre of Nations" season opening in 1962) by ITI Centers, of which there are currently more than 90 around the world. Additionally, it is observed by theatres, theatre enthusiasts, professionals, universities, academies, and schools.
